Work is changing, and for many, the future will eliminate the work they do today. A recent report by the McKinsey Global Institute concluded that nearly two-thirds of all jobs could have a significant part – at least 30% – of their activities automated by 2030. That could affect 800 million roles, it said. Further, “… about half of all work activities globally have the technical potential to be automated by adapting currently demonstrated technologies…” This has a significant impact on the future of business and on the future of the workforce. If you are a Business owner or Leader, preparing for this inevitable change should be a big part of your strategic planning. The year 2030, the endpoint of this study, isn’t far away.
